Touriga Nacional

07. Vallado Touriga Nacional

Sensory features: With a dark crimson colour, this Touriga Nacional boasts great concentration and aromas of bergamot and wild fruits, with violet and spicy hints. The taste is sweet, round and mature, with silky tannins. Red fruits follow through from the nose into a long, concentrated, fresh finish. A rare, beautiful and inexpensive example

Technical Notes
Grape variety: 100% Touriga Nacional

Vinification
The grapes come from the estate vineyards planted in 1994 are vinified in Quinta do Vallado winery in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, each holding a maximum of 5 tons of grapes, with manual remontage. After malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, the wine is racked to 225 litre Frech oak barriques, where it stays there for 16 months. 55%of these barrels are new, and the remaining were used for 1 -2 years old barriques, so that the Touriga Nacional aromas are not overcome by oak.

Best served: serve at room temperature with light meat dishes, such as pork, flavourful, hard cheeses from cow or sheep‟s milk.
